August 13,

mink, in the morning.

 The cormorant nests on Little Roberts were abandoned, the young move towards the shore, this indicates that eagles have been foraging here.

Adult great cormorant and 3 double crested, at least two of which appear to be fledgelings.
the birds are close to the shore so that when the eagles come by they can seek refuge underwater. In recent years there has been little or no recruitment to the great cormorant population in the area.

I doesn't take much to get the cormorants moving, this is the first of the season,  a group of passing double crested cormorant, headed SW

Rudy Turnstones at Little brimstone.
